Packing List: Essential Supplies for Every Traveler’s Medical Kit

It’s always a good idea to have a medical kit with you when you travel, especially if you’re going on a lengthy trip. Traveling requires you to be considerably more physically active than normal, which results in unexpected aches and pains and, in some cases, injuries. Getting a sunburn, for example, is made worse if you don’t have remedies to alleviate the symptoms.

Travel Medical Kit Considerations

Consider the location you’ll be going and what could or might not be available. Some careful preparation and packing before to your vacation might help you avoid wasting time, being inconvenienced, or worse while you’re away.

What Should Be in a Traveler’s Medical Kit?

  • Prescription antibiotic prescribed by your physician.
  • Diarrhea medicine.
  • Laxative.
  • Over-the-counter paracetamol
  • Liniment for muscle aches.
  • Ointment for insect bites.
  • Sunburn protection (and sunburn medication just in case).
  • Allergy and cold medicines.
  • Pain medication.
  • Medication for motion sickness and nausea.
  • Triple antibiotic ointment
  • More band aids and bandages than you think you’ll need
  • Alcohol and alcohol pads
  • Hydrogen Peroxide as a disinfectant (if the bottle fits in your suitcase).
  • Moleskin pads for foot blisters.
  • Elastic bandages for sprains
  • Extra face masks and face shields
